One of the cheapest oils with suitable ACEA C3 grading is GM Dexos 2 5W-30. Nowadays it doesn't have the BMW LL-04 approval like it used to, but I personally don't care about that. (For example regarding Castrol oils being previous OEM oil supplier no longer have BMW approval even if the oil is exactly the same.)
